You probably know what I think about baby blue pastels by now. Babies are supposed to like contrast and strong colours that stimulate them, not insipid chalky colours. I want funky and bright!
I’m also a cheapskate and hate paying full price for stuff when I can make it myself.
This is what happened when I decided I wanted to make Sam a more personal mobile for above his cot rather than just buy one readymade from a shop:
As I still wanted the mobile to be musical and rotate, after seeing my doctor on Monday I went to a local consignment shop and found a pretty bland looking bunny mobile for $12 which sings a lullaby when wound up.
Those poor cutesy bunnies with their oh so pretty pretty flowers didn’t last too long back at my house. I’m afraid they got stripped from the mobile and discarded. Bye bye bunnies!
And hello Tiger, Elephant, Zebra and Lion! Little felt animals that I lovingly made myself.
There, much better!
Now I just have to hope Sam likes it.
